GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jose Abreu had both angles wrapped for Friday's 2-2 tie with the Indians at Camelback Ranch and has battled some ankle soreness, according to White Sox manager Robin Ventura.

"It's nothing right now that we're to be alarmed about," Ventura said. "He had a couple of days there he took off, but he's doing better. He's still running.

"About four or five days ago, it looked like something was wrong. Now, he looks better, he's running better. We just have to get the soreness out."

Abreu finished 1-for-3 with a double to right-center off of Josh Tomlin.

"There's probably a lot of things going on," said Ventura of the soreness. "New shoes, wearing orthotics, and just trying that for the first time."
